WHAT’S NEW IN THE NEW RIPLEY

  • Two geometry options: The nimble geometry of the original or a new school long and slack version called the Ripley LS
  • Internal cable routing using our flexible and easy to setup port system
  • Increased tire clearance
  • Threaded bottom bracket
  • Seat mast lowered by 1/2” to accommodate today’s longer droppers
  • Choice of Boost 148 (staring in November ’15) or 142mm x 12mm Shimano through axle (now)
  • Stiffer eccentric cores
  • New rubber molded chainstay and seatstay protection
  • Two new colors (let’s call them “Tang” and “Black”)

FEATURES

  • 120mm rear wheel dw-link travel
  • Carbon fiber monocoque frame and swingarm
  • 5.5 Pound frame* with Fox FLOAT DPS EVOL
  • Approved for 120-140mm forks, 51mm rake is STRONGLY recommended
  • Tapered head tube (suitable for various Cane Creeks & Chris King InSet 3)
  • Shock Specs: Fox Factory FLOAT DPS 3pos w/Adj and EVOL Sleeve with Kashima Coat 184mm x 44mm
  • Provision for internal cable-actuated or hydraulic adjustable seat posts
  • Post mount rear brake mounts
  • Shimano side swing front derailleur compatible.
  • * Frame weight is for a medium black with shock but without seat collar, rear axle, or water bottle bolts

Internal cable routing that uses the same port system found on the HD3 has been added to the Ripley, keeping things neat and tidy.

Ibis cut new molds for the standard and the LS version, and both 29ers share the same rear triangle, which has been reconfigured slightly to offer increased tire clearance. Ibis will offer both standard and LS models with either the present 142 standard or with the new Boost 148 hub standard beginning this fall, so riders can upgrade their existing parts to a new frame or choose next-gen components.

The introduction of the Fox Float DPS EVOL SV shock will take care of the damping on the rear end.

Multiple build kits will be available and can be seen at Ibis Cycles or click here.

The retail price is staying the same as the current Ibis Ripley at £2649.00. You can expect to see them with us first in the U.K, stock frames and demo bikes will be available.

Call 01694 781515 or drop us an email for further info or to place a pre-order, some pre-order deals will be available.

Scott 2016- Scott Sports- Scott Mountain Bikes- Scott Road Bikes- Scott CX Bikes- 27.5+ Wheels- E-bikes- E-Genius- U.K- Stockist- Dealer- Demo- Genius Plus- Scale Plus- Genius LT Plus- E-Genius Plus- E-Genius 710- E-Genius 720- E-Contessa Genius 720

It’s coming to that time of year again (seems earlier every year) when we will get to see the new line up of bikes from Scott.

The 2016 line up is sounding hotter than ever, improved price points, new e-bikes (will we see an E-Genius), 27.5+ wheel sizes in the range, a new range of cyclo cross (CX) bikes and as always a vast array of top quality road and mountain bikes.

This year we are off to Switzerland to view the Scott 2016 line up, we will be test riding, ordering and generally getting the feel for the 2016 range. On our return we will be posting an in depth blog of all the new bikes, feature, wheel sizes, etc… and also giving people the opportunity to pre-order their 2016 Scott bike.

With a vast amount of momentum behind the brand you can expect to see a really hot year for Scott. With the help of all their pro riders, such as Brendan Fairclough, Neko Mulally, Nino Schurter, Geoff Kabush and now GMBN riders Marc Beaumont and Neil Donoghue they have really been able to hone their already excellent bikes in to the must have bikes of the moment.

Scott have always been renowned for their cutting edge carbon fibre bikes and with the continued carbon technology sharing with Red Bull, the only way for the brand is up.

We will have a full range of bikes in stock and a huge range of demo bikes, so you can try before you buy, Up to 36 months 0% finance available on all 2016 Scott bikes. As one of the U.K’s leading Scott dealer/ Stockist/ demo centres, we pride ourselves on the quality of our service.

If you would like to know more about the Scott 2016 line up, feel free to drop us an email or call us.

Just confirmed is the Scott Genius Plus, Genius LT Plus, E-Genius Plus and Scale Plus

2016 Scott Genius LT Plus

2016 Scott Genius LT Plus

Now this is a monster of a bike and the one I was fortunate enough to test ride for two days in the Tuscany. 160mm travel at both ends combined with the chunky tires, the LT Plus has the potential to take on some rowdy terrain. Travel can be adjusted via the new TwinLoc lever from full lockout, 100mm travel or 160mm. The FOX 36 fork has also has the addition of low speed compression which wasn’t on option on older TwinLoc systems. Again the front triangles are shared with the existing bikes, but the alloy rear triangle is new to accommodate Boost 148mm hubs. Big hit capability is upped again with the EVOL air can on the LT 700 Tuned Plus and LT 710 Plus models, and even has bigger volume spacers fitted. The Tuned version weighs in at a (claimed) 28lbs, and still no XL sizing for the tall guys.

2016 Scott Genius Plus

2016 Scott Genius Plus

There are three models of Genius Plus. The 700 Tuned Plus and 710 Plus use carbon mainframes, while the 720 Plus is alloy. Mainframes are shared with Genius 900 models but with a new alloy rear triangle to accommodate Boost 148mm wide hubs and create tire clearance for the wider rubber. Scott’s literature says the chainstays are “super short” at 445mm, to which I would disagree, now that ‘super short’ would be considered 435mm or less even on 29″ bikes. The TwinLoc lever had been re-designed for 2016, and is now mounted underneath the handlebar on the left hand side, travel is adjustable between full lockout, 90mm or 130mm. Aggresive Nobby Nic tires front and rear.

2016 Scott Scale Plus

2016 Scott Scale Plus

The Scale Plus is not to be confused with its pure-bred XC racing brother. The Scale Plus is marketed as a trail bike opposed to a racing machine, with more relaxed geometry alloy frames which weigh in at 1580g. The 710 model comes with a FOX 32 and the 720 model is the only bike to see a Suntour Raidon fork.

Scott E-Genius 710 Plus, E-Genius 720 Plus & E-Contessa Genius 720 Plus

2016 Scott E-Genius 710 Plus

2016 Scott E-Genius 710 Plus

The Scott E-Genius Plus has 140mm front suspension travel and 130mm at the rear. Internally routed cables make for a very clean look. The Scott E-Genius Plus is equipped with the new Bosch Performance CX mid-drive motor with 250 Watts and higher torque. Scott fits it with their own motor cover.

The seatstay bridge was conceived to give maximum tyre clearance with the shortest possible rear end. The factory fitted Schwalbe 3.0“ Nobby Nic tyres fit without problems.

SCOTT chose Fox forks and shock with their in-house 3 level Twinloc-Technology, which has been further refined for 2016.

To get the full story head over to E-Mountain Bike Magazine.

Pricing and pre-order available in the next few weeks.

2016 Scott's see a new, more ergonomic TwinLoc lever.

2016 Scott's see a new, more ergonomic TwinLoc lever.

Intense Tracer T275C DVO Limited Edition- Limited Edition Tracer 275C DVO- DVO- Intense Cycles- Demo- U.K- Stockist- Dealer

Check out the new Intense Tracer T275C DVO Limited Edition. Only 250 of these being made, expect a medium and large in store in the next month or so. To pre-order please call 01694 781515.
Intense Cycles is proud to share a special project that we have been working on with DVO Suspension, the Limited Edition Tracer 275C DVO. It will be shown live April 16 through April 19 at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, cycling’s North American season opener. This special limited edition bike will be available at Intense dealerships by the last week of April.
Intense Tracer T275C DVO Limited Edition

Intense Tracer T275C DVO Limited Edition

The Limited Edition Tracer 275C DVO allows Intense Cycles to offer Interbike’s 2014 Bike of the Year, the Tracer 275C, in a special ride package featuring DVO’s race-tuned suspension. With a special design customized to highlight the new DVO Trail suspension system – a Diamond Fork with 160mm of travel and the Jade coil rear shock – this bike gives riders a completely different feel than the standard specified air shock.

Riders experience a more supple ride, increased traction and superior big hit performance because with the Jade coil rear shock, the first 50mm of travel – or “sag” – is much more active than air. The rear coil shock also allows for a more active suspension that keeps the rear tire in contact with the ground to increase traction. And when compared with an air shock, a coil shock provides a more linear feel though the travel. Big hits feel controlled as the bike cycles through its travel, especially when bottomed out. The unique DVO system allows the rider to dial in the suspension feel while on the go for that perfect race tune tailored to each ride.

Like our 951 EVO DVO bike we shared with you last fall, the Tracer DVO is not just a simple spec change but a bike designed around this special suspension system. We used the SRAM XO/X1 drivetrain combination with green highlights on the cranksets and derailleurs, Stan’s Flow wheels with matching green color hits, a stunning black and green Tracer carbon frame using high-gloss green paint to match the DVO components. We chose a Renthal cockpit, Maxxis High Roller II tires, Rock Shox Reverb adjustable post and Shimano XT brakes.

This bike is another example of Intense’s commitment to making high-performance bikes with a stunning finish. Intense will build 250 of these bikes and no more.
